action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics. this evening michelle and i will do what i know every parent in america will do which is have our children a little tighter, and we'll tell them that we love them. and we'll remind each other how deeply we love one another. but there are families in connecticut without can to the do that tonight. and they need all of us right now. in the hard days to come that community needs us to be at our best as americans, and i will do everything in my power as president to help. because while nothing can fill the space of a lost child or loved one, all of us can extend a hand to those in need, to remind them that we are there for them, that we are praying for them, that the love they felt for those they lost endures not just in their memories but also in ours. may god bless the memory of the victims. and in the word its of scripture, heal the broken hearted, and bind up their wounds. >> woodruff: ray suarez reports on how the day unfolded. >> suarez: the 9-1-1 call from the school came shortly after 9:30 this morning, and

? next month? next year? next what? and if not us, who in this world will demand action to protect americans? joining me now is u.s. senator dick durbin of illinois. i want to read something from you which is very impressive and it's in the op-ed pages of "the chicago tribune." quote, what holds us back are political organizes that are well-funded, well-organized, and determined to resist even reasonable limb tathss. there's a close political parallel between the gridlock in washington on dealing with our economy and national debt and the eerie silence in congress as the list of horrific gun crimes grows by the day. senator durbin, thank you. i know you have got a good heart on this as well as a good head about fiscal matters. what's wrong with the congress when it comes to protecting, ensuring the domestic tranquility? >> well, there's a legitimate concern about our second amendment, chris. you understand that part. but there's also a very strong political force that is trying to push forward, primarily for the dealers and manufacturers h an agenda that will sell more firearms and
on the president's call for congressional action early next year. >> i will be putting forward very specific proposals. i will be talking about them in my state of the union and we will be working with interested members of congress to try and get something done. >> vice president joe biden is leading the push to draft those proposals, and yesterday he began that effort, meeting with law enforcement officials and cabinet members. i want to go right to you, michael eric dyson. you saw as much of our audience did, this rather extraordinary address from the head of the nra. here we are. as i said, one week out from this mass murder, from this shooting, which the nation is still reeling from, and as i said, you can only describe it as combative, and one of the themes that really coursed throughout that address was that the problem is fake guns in movies and video games, not real guns in our schools. >> yeah. you are being very kind. i think menevolent at. it wasn't fake guns that killed these kids. they were real guns. they were semiautomatic weapon guns. they were clips and strips and drums tha
and rejecting real action against gun violence. at a defining a historic moment for our nation demanding courageous leadership, the nra has declined to step forward as a credible and constructive partner. the proposal for more armed guards in schools may be helpful in some instances, but it falls short of the strong, serious comprehensive action needed to stop the kind of horrific tragedy that occurred last week. many police that spoke to me on that day when we take a said that the killer was so heavily armed that they doubted they could have stopped him. the american people are demanding real change. the nra proposal fails to offer any real protection from violence. members in connecticut and around the country are writing and calling me to say that the nra does not speak for them. it was a call for action. the nra has failed to answer the call. we need to do something about these guns, about the assault weapons, the kind that was used in the new town tragedy. i am very proud to join and senator feinstein oppose the bill that will help put a stop to the proliferation of the assault weap
of duty? why is it not the grounds for disciplinary action? the 1998 bombings in kenya and tanzania, the a.r.b. formed then came out with a series of recommendations. many of your recommendations today, broader ones, are very similar. those bombings in east africa were supposed to have been a never-again moment. what happened between then and now that this could possibly have happened to? >> without accepting your characterization of the problem, it is clear that under the law and in connection with the state department regulatory practice, one has to find willful misconduct or similar kinds of action in order to find a breach of duty. one of our recommendations is, there is such a large gap between willful misconduct which leads obviously to conclusions about discipline, letters of reprimand, separation, the removal of an individual temporarily from duty, that we believe that gap ought to be filled. we found perhaps close to, as we sit in the report, breach -- but there were performance inadequacies. these are the ones we believe ought to be taken up. >> how did the lessons of kenya and t
. it is not the outcome that i wanted. that was the will of the house. unless the president and congress take action, tax rates will go up on every american taxpayer and devastating defense cuts will go into effect in ten days. the house has already passed bills addressing the fiscal cliff. passed a bill and replacing the president's sequester with responsible spending cuts and did it last may. we passed a bill to stop all the tax hikes on the american people scheduled to take effect january the 1st and we did that on august 1st. and we propose plans over and over again, the democrats used to support and now they won't. i don't want taxes to go up. republicans don't want taxes to go up. we only run the house. democrats continue to run washington. what the president has proposed so far simply won't do anything to solve our spending problem. he wants more spending and more tax hikes that will hurt our economy and he simply won't deal honestly with entitlement reform and the big issues facing our country. we need significant spending cuts and real tax reform to address our long-term debt problem and pave th

, mayor michael bloomberg on some of the talk shows pressing obama to take action. you remember on friday, in his remarks at the white house, president hinted at that saying he thinks there should be meaningful action that both parties can come together in the days ahead. i'm told to not expect the president to gun control at the high school here in newtown. he believes it's not the time and place to do that. to focus on prayer and remembrance. no doubt, we'll hear the debate in the days ahead. >> heather: thank you very much. >> welcome to a brand-new hour of america news headquarters as rick said, i'm heather childers. >> gregg: i'm gregg jarrett. we'll follow the movements of president as he visits to family members as well as his remarks before the congregation. >> in the preparation and investigation into this tragedy is actually gaining speed. authorities say the gunman shot his mother, not once but multiple times in the head before then going to the elementary school and committing his further atrocities. mike tobin joins us live. the latest developments in this case. give us a run
a lot of people are calling for much tougher action, how do you think he will respond to those problems? what will be his priority? >> you were saying earlier, the contrast between john kerry and susan rice. he knows barack obama well. they served together on the senate foreign relations committee. but he does not bring the relationship into the job that susan rice would have. part of it would be sitting down with the president and determining what is, aside from world events that are already on the to do list -- where does barack obama want to make his mark in the second term? middle east peace? global warming? immigration reform? obviously, that will determine to some extent where john kerry moves going forward. >> thank you very much for joining us. as we just heard, what to do about the ongoing civil war in syria will be one of the big questions facing the next secretary of state. nato accused the assad government today of continuing to fire more scud missiles on its own people, claiming it was an act of desperation of a regime nearing its end. making matters worse, the harsh condit
by the speakers ponied, procedural excuses. they are part of excuses. they expect action. i say to the speaker, this is not a game, it is not scoring political points of putting wins on the board, there will be very serious consequences for many of families if congress fails to compromise. it is time for the speaker to return to the negotiation table ready to compromise. it is time for the house, especially house republicans to remember what is at stake. i repeat. further $50,000 program would pass overwhelmingly in the house. it is up to the speaker to let that occur. melissa: that was harry reid speaking on the floor. he was criticizing speaker boehner. we are waiting for senate authority leader mitch mcconnell to take to the podium and ressond to that. he is up at the podium. we will listen. >> here with the leaders of the democratic party, here in the senate, other than the president, these are the folks with the greatest responsibility for protecting the american people from the tax hike in america. what do they do, they stand in front of the cameras and laugh. they giggled at a bunch of

aide, they felt it's up to the democrats to act now. so the christmas spirit has not softened actions. but what has softened? customer confidence. in the last week gallup found the drop in the likelihood congress will come to a deal. also holiday spending hit its lowest rate since the 2008 recession. while the president said before he left for hawaii that he said he hoped the holiday would give them a chance to cool off and reach an agreement, it appears republicans would prefer to stay home for the holidays. merry christmas, everybody. for more on this, joining us now from washington, we have contributor jared bernstein. also a senior fellow on budget and policy priorities. and a former economist for vice president joe biden. and of course nbc's luke russert. luke, i'm starting with you. we just got a statement from speaker boehner and the house leaders. and shock. they are putting it back on the senate. tell us about the statement and where it's going from here. >> it's a fascinating ping-pong match right now. but really with the senate, john boehner, eric cantor with mccarthy and m

at a culture that all too often glorifies guns and violence. and any actions we must take must begin inside the home and inside our hearts. but the fact that this problem is complex can no longer be an excuse for doing nothing. >> later in that same press conference, president obama offered a sharp response when he was asked why his administration has mostly stayed away from the subject of gun control until now. >> this is not the first issue -- the first incident of horrific gun violence of your four years. where have you been? >> well, here's where i've been, jake. i've been president of the united states, dealing with the worst economic crisis since the great depression. an auto industry on the verge of collapse, two wars. i don't think i've been on vacation. and so, you know, i think all of us have to do some reflection on how we prioritize what we do here in washington. this should be a wakeup call for all of us. to say that if we are not getting right the need to keep our children safe, then nothing else matters. and it's my commitment to make sure that we do everything we can to keep

[ bell tolling ] they stopped to remember the children, chase, charlotte, daniel and caroline among them who won't be celebrating christmas next week or ever again. their loss and the painful thought of the lives that might have been have rekindled a call to action against guns that politicians in both parties have muzzled for 20 years. and as americans mourned and strengthen

and take into actions that she did, that shooter had the capability of killing much more in this tragedy would have been far worse if it wasn't for her heroic actions, so, i think that that loss certainly is extremely heart felt and we're saddened, but in the other instance, it gives me great pleasure to know that she did what she was supposed to do and when we talk about these types of things, in our wildest dreams did we ever think that the conversation that her and i actually had would unfold into reality and then causing the loss of her life. she's truly a hero today. >> dave: we mention you're the first selectmen in woodbury and how is your community coming together around this tragedy? >> the first thing when this was unfolding was sheer shock and then it was horror and then it goes into heart break and as a community, we're coming together and we're all talking, we're grieving and trying to make some sense of the senseless and we're strong, we're a small community and we'll come together and get through this. >> dave: is there anything you need? i think so many people ask us what
immediate action to avoid those automatic tax increases and spending cuts come january. president obama is saying that with the way speaker boehner plan stands now, no deal. >> unfortunately the speaker's proposal is out of balance. we will have to see the rates on the top 2% go up and we are not going to be able to get a deal without it. >> that was an exclusive with bloomberg t.v. and the first televised interview since the president's re-election. as you heard, taxes are the big issue blocking this deal from taking place. president obama is calling for downhill the amount of tax revenue as speaker boehner over the next tens years, most from the nation's top earners. many. republicans say that's not the way to handle this. here is marco rubio. >> it wouldn'ting make a small bent in the debt but it would heard middle class businesses. >> the g.o.p. could be risking a civil war over this issue. it does not look like obama is ready to cave. if that forces republican leaders to compromise staunch conservatives will likely rebel. more "bill press" up after t
